About My Clients
Sarita enjoys working with a variety of clients from children through adults. She feels honored to be let into the journey of another's life, and specializes in traumatic stress and PTSD, depression and anxiety, racial and bi-racial identity development and trauma, transition difficulties, and adjustment disorders. She enjoys celebrating the beauty of each individual in their inherent strength and uncovering their gifts together through the power of the therapeutic relationship.
My Background and Approach
Sarita (she/her) is an MSW, LGSW from the University of Minnesota. She believes that a strong and caring therapeutic relationship is critical to healing and growth, particularly within BIPOC communities. Sarita is passionate about anti-oppressive mental health care, and believes in the power of a person-centered, relational, and strengths-based approach to provide space for clients to thrive. She knows that it takes both deep bravery and safety to cultivate room that allows for vulnerability, and she will work hard to earn your trust.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Sarita is a transplant to the Midwest and has enjoyed living in Minneapolis for the past 6 years. She grew up in Philly and is an avid runner and reader. Sarita loves to travel - especially to visit her family in India - and is deeply committed to activism, community, and creating a more inclusive, just, and equitable world. She is part of the Black Lives Matter Movement and has volunteered with the Samaritans Suicide Hotline when living in New York City. She worked for the Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery, and interned at Stonebridge World School and Hamm Clinic as therapist. She believes in communities that can sustain each other through mutual aid that are supported by progressive social services -- such as safe injection sites and housing for all -- and holistically understands people in the context of their environments. She is passionate about environmental change and believes that we can carry all that we love too deeply to lose to the other side of the climate crisis.
